Happy Monday, beautiful souls! I enjoyed my short blogging break and am back in the saddle. I have a lot coming up this week, including announcing the winners of the Saddled Hearts Blog Tour Scavenger Hunt, so stay tuned.
In the meantime, isn’t this an incredible quote? People who are imprisoned find freedom when they realize this.
What a fantastic meditation this is! I could easily recommend this as a daily go-to!
Back to the tarot cards this week.
The Ten of Pentacles is a beautiful card of abundance. While Pentacles are mainly associated with earthly wealth and financial security, they can also indicate an abundance of health and/or love.
This card reflects permanence and creating a lasting foundation for future success. It is a card of commitment to a sustainable future, taking into consideration not just the short-term gains of a particular venture but also the long-term benefits. A consistent approach will achieve success that will last the test of time. The Ten of Pentacles indicates that you feel compelled to share your success with others to make sure they are well cared for, too. It is also a sign that family is very important to you. Being surrounded by the people you love and who share your DNA and ancestry brings you great joy and happiness. You are also strongly connected to your family history and heritage, a part of the long lineage that goes before you. It represents tradition, being a part of something bigger, and realizing that the blood of your ancestors flows through your veins.
It seems that we just recently had the Knight of Swords, and feel like the card needs minimal explaining. It is a card of action. Swords represent the intellect or mind.
When the Knight of Swords appears in a Tarot reading, it is a sign that you are highly driven, ambitious, and action-oriented. You are so highly motivated to succeed that you will stop at nothing to pursue your dreams. The challenges, difficulties, and obstacles on the path ahead don’t faze you because you know where you want to go. Move forward with sheer strength and determination to make things happen.
The Knight of Swords suggests that you are quick to take action and tend not to plan ahead, instead preferring to dive right in. You thrive on high levels of energy that propel you forward and inspire you to take action to manifest your goals.
The Emperor represents a powerful leader who demands respect and authority. Status, power, and recognition are essential to you, and you are most comfortable in a leadership role where you can command and direct others. As a leader, you rule with a firm but fair hand. You have a clear vision of what you want to create, and you organize those around you to manifest your goal. You listen to the advice of others, but you prefer to have the final say. Conflict doesn’t scare you, and you won’t hesitate to use your power to protect those you care about. And in return, those people will repay you with the loyalty and respect you deserve. Claim your authority as a leader and influencer, and don’t let others put you down.
The Emperor reflects a system bound by rules and regulations. You create law and order by applying principles or guidelines to a specific situation. Create calm out of chaos by breaking down any problem into its parts and then mapping out the actions you need to take to resolve it. Be systematic, strategic, and highly organized in your approach, and stick to your plan until the end.
For those of us here in the U.S., we are just coming off a family-oriented holiday with an abundance of food and love. So to me, that is represented by the Ten of Pentacles. The Knight is all about moving forward…Taking an idea and running with it while the Emperor reminds us to stay within the bounds of rules and regulations with a strategic and organized approach to any project with a determination to see it through.
This little dragon may have shown up before, but if so, he’s making another appearance. He is so inspiring and beautiful and pretty much goes hand-in-hand with the Knight of Swords!
